Factors linked to housing and neighborhood conditions that influence health, can be grouped into broad categories: the health impacts of residential instability; those related to housing internal conditions; the health impacts of context in which dwelling is located; the housing affordability. Many answers to these requirements can be offered by co-housing and social housing and Authors describe same examples from international experiences. These problems nowadays need to be assessed with a multidisciplinary approach, because of the complexity and wideness of its components. To guarantee good health standards it is also necessary to direct political and administrative choices to improve the overall conditions of the neighborhood and of the buildings, and, to dispose of a clear and updated regulatory system, since key factor to ensure health and social justice.
